Government ministers may brief the 93 top functionaries of the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its 15 affiliates about several issues, including economy, agriculture and education, and will be given inputs by the 'Sangh parivar' bodies, sources said.

While the meeting is seen as appraisal exercise for the 15-month-old Modi dispensation, RSS has maintained that it is neither meant to review the government's performance nor to take any decision but only to "exchange notes" and deliberate over the inputs provided by the participants.

Sources said social, economic, cultural and education issues will be discussed during the three days and the ministers concerned will attend.
